A steakhouse for the consummate Texan, Fort Worth–based Lonesome Dove has a new home in downtown Austin just a couple of blocks from its former location. Though the feeling is a bit different in the modern digs, the rustic ranch details and the core of the country-western cuisine remain. We enjoyed bites of rabbit-rattlesnake sausage with a spicy base of crispy jalapeño-potato rosti. A place like this had better deliver on steak, and the tenderloin filet we ordered with serrano-lime butter made the grade. For dessert, a decadent ancho chile chocolate cake with crunchy almond brittle and house-made vanilla bean ice cream finished the evening on a high note.
